Bellarine Arts Trail 2018

A glimpse behind the scenes in an artist’s studio is the focus of the third Bellarine Arts Trail 2018 being held on Saturday 3 November and Sunday 4 November.  33 studios and collective venues will open in the towns of Barwon Heads, Ocean Grove, Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria.

This lovely coastal peninsula is one and a half hours drive from Melbourne, via Geelong, and the Bellarine Arts Trail has become a popular way for visitors to find out more about the art, the techniques, and what makes artists happy when they create!

SwellARTS studio is open as part of the Bellarine Arts Trail 2018.  Situated in Point Lonsdale, sisters Meryl Hodgson and Carolyn McKinnon merge their interests on display.  Carolyn is a gold and silversmith and stone carver and will show limestone garden sculptures, and silver jewellery.  Meryl photographs the details of her coastal backyard inspired by  Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale’s  170 years of maritime history as one of Port Phillip’s first towns.  She produces photographic poster prints and heritage cards.

The Bellarine Arts Trail 2018  is a great way to really discover the art and meet the artists in their studios, galleries, and creative venues.

SwellARTS is venue 21, Fellows Rd,  Point Lonsdale. 10am-4pm
